Jan Matthias Klein, Little Bastard, Riesling/Sauvignon Blanc/Müller-Thurgau
Mosel, Germany (2020)
The Staffelter Hof Estate in Germany is one of the oldest companies in the world, first appearing in texts in 862 AD. The estate encompasses many vineyards across the Mosel and has helped shape the region as a global leader in fine white wines. Jan Matthias Klein, a winemaker with the estate has used his experience making wine in France, New Zealand, and Australia to create clean, fresh wines that express the terroir of the Mosel with natural wine practices.
The Little Bastard white blend is a blend of 60% Riesling, 25% Sauvignon Blanc, 12% Muller-Thurgau, and 3% Muscat. The blend makes for a complex white wine with bright and zesty lemon, kumquat, and white flowers!
